Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has called the country's third parliamentary election this year on Nov. 14 after inconclusive polls in April and July failed to produce a government, the president's press office said on Wednesday.

Radev, who is running for re-election in a presidential vote which will be held on the same date, will dissolve parliament and appoint a new caretaker government in the European Union country on Sept. 16.
